c. Information from Third Parties

The Site may include functionality that allows certain kinds of interactions between the Site and your account on a third-party website or application. The use of this functionality may involve the third-party site providing information to us or us providing information to the third party. For example, we may provide links on the Site to facilitate sending a communication from the Site, or we may use third parties to facilitate emails or postings to social media (like a “Share” or “Forward” button). These third parties may retain any information used or provided in any such communications or activities and these third parties’ practices are not subject to our Privacy Policy. We may not control or have access to your communications through these third parties. Further, when you use third-party sites or services, you are using their services and not our services and they, not we, are responsible for their practices. You should read the applicable third-party privacy policies before using such third-party tools on our Site. Please also see our Terms & Conditions for further information.

2. How We Use Your Information

We may use your information for various purposes, including the following:

3. Disclosure of Your Information

We may share your information, including your Personal Information, with government agencies issuing the tax ID number, as well as with our affiliates, service providers, business associates, and other third parties that perform essential services for us; for example, a payment processor, a cloud-service or internet service provider, an email marketing vendor, a customer service provider, or entities that handle other business functions for us.

As permitted by law, we insist that these partners follow the same rules and standards with respect to your personal information as we do, and we typically have a contractual agreement in place with the other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it was disclosed.

We do not sell, rent or lease our customer lists to third parties. If you are a California resident, you may have additional rights with respect to the transmission of your information for this purpose. Please see the section entitled “Your California Privacy Rights” below for more information. We may also share the information we have collected about you, including Personal Information, as may be disclosed at the time you provide your information in addition to as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may aggregate, de-identify, and/or anonymize any information collected through the Site or Services such that such information is no longer linked to your Personal Information. We may use and share this aggregated and anonymized information (which is no longer Personal Information) for any purpose, including without limitation, for research and marketing purposes, analytics, and may also share such data with our affiliates and third parties, including advertisers, promotional partners and others.

Certain Personal Information about you may also be disclosed in the following situations:

4. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We may use various methods and technologies to store or collect information about you (“Tracking Technologies”). Tracking Technologies may set, change, alter or modify settings or configurations on your Device. A few of the Tracking Technologies used on the Site, include, but are not limited to, the following (as well as future-developed tracking technology or methods that are not listed here):

We may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:

You can choose whether to accept cookies and other Tracking Technologies by changing the settings on your browser. If you choose not to enable cookies, you will still be able to browse our Site, but doing so will restrict some of the functionality of our Site and what you can do.

You can set your web browser to alert you when a cookie is being used. You can also get information on the duration of the cookie and what server your data is being returned to. You then can accept or reject the cookie. Additionally, you can set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers.

You can opt in or out of cookies at any time – except strictly necessary cookies (these are used to help make our website work efficiently).

You can enable or disable cookies in your browser. If you wish to restrict or block the cookies set by any website – you can do this through the web browser settings for each web browser you use, on each device you use to access the internet. Some of the more popular browsers (and links to manage your cookies on each) are:

Information on controlling and deleting cookies, including on a wide variety of browsers, is also available at allaboutcookies.org.

If you choose not to enable cookies, you will still be able to browse our Site, but it will restrict some of the functionality of our Site and what you can do.

Some services may not function or may have more limited functionality if your web browser does not accept cookies. However, you can allow cookies from specific websites by making them ‘trusted websites’ in your web browser.

If you want to opt-out of cookies across different advertising networks, the Network Advertising Initiative website – www.networkadvertising.org – has more information and guidance.

If you don’t wish to accept cookies from one of our emails, you can choose not to download any images or click on any links. You can also set your browser to restrict cookies or to reject them entirely. These settings will apply to all cookies, whether included on websites or in emails.

For more information, refer to your email browser or device instructions. We may also collect data through Google Analytics, or similar applications, which use cookies and technologies to collect and analyze data about use of the Services.

5. Do Not Track Signals

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals), but there is no universally agreed-upon standard for what a company should do when it detects a DNT signal. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.

6. Your Choices About the Information We Collect

You have choices when it comes to how we use your information, and we want to ensure you have the information to make the choices that are right for you.

If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails, you may opt out by following the instructions in any such email you receive from us or contacting us at [email protected]. If you would prefer that we not share your name and mailing address with third parties (other than with our affiliates) to receive promotional offers, you have the option to opt out of such sharing. To do so, please email us at [email protected]. Your choice will not affect our ability to share information in the other ways described in this Privacy Policy.

7. Children’s Privacy

The Site is not intended for use by children under the age of 18. We do not request, or knowingly collect, any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 18 who you believe has provided her/his/its/their information to us, please contact us at [email protected] to request the deletion of that information. 

8. Security

We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section, below. 

For your convenience, the Site and this Privacy Policy may contain links to other websites. EINFA is not responsible for the privacy practices, advertising, products, services, or the content of such other websites. None of the links on the Site should be deemed to imply that EINFA endorses or has any affiliation with the links. Please see our Terms & Conditions for more information.

10. Updating Personal Information

We prefer to keep your Personal Information accurate and up to date. If you would like to change your contact information, please contact us at [email protected]. We will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in our then active databases as soon as reasonably practicable (but we may retain prior information as business records).

11. International Data Transfers

We operate in and use service providers located in the United States, however, because EINFA works with global companies and technologies, your Personal Information may be transferred outside of the country in which it was originally provided. This may include transfers to third parties, such as service providers or affiliated entities who are located outside the United States or the European Union, where data protection laws may not offer the same level of protection as those in the United States. When we transfer Personal Information outside of these areas, we take steps to make sure that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect your personal information.

12. Your California Privacy Rights

This section of the Privacy Policy applies solely to California residents. We adopt this Policy to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and the California Privacy Reform Act (“CPRA”). Any terms defined in the CCPA or CPRA have the same meaning when used in this Section.

You can also request that we delete your personal information. There may be certain exceptions to our obligation to delete your information such as if you have an existing account or transaction with us or if we have a legitimate business reason to keep your information.

For emails, please include “California Privacy Rights” as the subject line. You must include your full name, email address, and attest to the fact that you are a California resident. We will acknowledge your request within 10 days and respond to your request within 45 days or let you know if we need additional time.
